Memory Mining and Me, Me, Me Mentality

I’ve been self-analyzing a lot lately. My husband pointed out every instance of it last night, not to belittle me, but to help make me aware of it. It’s apparently my default. I think it happens when I’m feeling things I don’t have words for and become frustrated in circling around it but never quite having the words come into my mind.

He pointed out something important, too. Nobody is asking me to do that. I’m trying so hard to let go of perfectionism. I’m getting better at mitigating my expectations of others in that regard but I’m still needing to tend to myself.

And personal growth is being compassionate enough to be okay being exactly who you are, and not needing to know why. I don’t have to validate myself to anyone, especially myself.
